Hey! Happy International Women’s Day to one and all! I thought today was the perfect day to celebrate the top women bloggers that are a part of the Aha!NOW blog community – something new I’m starting at my blog.

It’s my way of thanking these wonderful women bloggers for being a part of the blog and my blogging journey.

If you remember in my earlier post I’d written about understanding women in today’s world to highlight how empowered and influential women have become around the globe.

Of course, when I say the world, I mean all the countries. Women might fare better in some countries, but my concern also goes to those in the developing and the third world countries.

Today’s post is about the wonderful women bloggers you might have come across on my blog, and to share a little about them with you.

Men, don’t be disheartened! Don’t worry, there’s something for you wonderful men too at the end of the post – so keep reading!

Women Bloggers & Their Life

Blogging today is helping women in a big way.

Blogging has become a boon for the disadvantaged, unprivileged, suppressed, oppressed, as well as the talented woman – apart from the enterprising and liberated woman.

There are so many women bloggers in the world today, and they are writing about anything and everything under the Sun.

I read somewhere that according to the Pew Research Center, there are nearly 18.9 million women who write blogs! Isn’t that commendable!

Times are tough for everyone. However, with these tough economic times, the ability of women bloggers to earn and contribute to their household’s income cannot be overlooked.

[su_quote cite="Diane Mariechild"]A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.[/su_quote]

How Blogging is Helping Women Bloggers

As a woman, I can definitely say that blogging has provided me a voice of my own. It’s also a great way to connect with people, make new friends, reach out and help others too.

Blogging is helping women bloggers, as now –

  • They are able to earn a living through their blogs by blogging and the work they do online. This has helped them to be financially independent.
  • They have the freedom to choose the life they want to lead by working on their terms.
  • They can choose to express themselves and their feelings when they wish to, without having to wait for anyone’s permission.
  • They are more committed, determined, and focused in their goals. Blogging gives them a purpose in life to be happy.
  • They can help others in the Blogosphere by sharing their lives and experiences.
  • Besides being homemakers, wives, mothers, daughters, sisters, and grannys, these women bloggers are making a name for themselves by working online also.
  • It’s helping them develop and evolve.

This list is endless, and a lot more can be added to it – so, do share your thoughts in the comments.

So, if you are a woman and have a story to tell, or you feel you have a voice, there’s absolutely NO reason you shouldn’t blog about it.

Take up blogging if you feel you’ve a flair for writing, marketing skills, or any other ability that can achieve its potential through blogging. You can always tap on the Aha!NOW blog community for help.

Go out and start blogging – women bloggers rock!

Top Women Bloggers of Aha!NOW

This is a little surprise for all of you – isn’t it?

I’ve been wanting to give back something to the awesome women bloggers of Aha!NOW who make it what it is today.

It is because of YOU that the blog exists, so you all have a major role in the making of Aha!NOW.

Being the International Women’s Day today; let me showcase the top women bloggers of the blog to all of you.

Though it’s just another day, but sometimes you and me need such days as reminders to appreciate and recognize the efforts of people who matter.

I did have a list of factors as criteria for choosing my best ladies, and I’ve mentioned them at the end of the post.

All of these are vibrant readers of Aha!NOW. They’ve spoken out, shared their views, conveyed their opinions, and become the second voice of Aha!NOW.

All of these ladies have contributed greatly to the posts. They’ve narrated their experiences and given suggestions with the sole aim of helping people learn and improve.

Here are the ‘wonder ladies’, and each one is an inspiration in herself. They’ve strong integrity and personality along with a strong belief in the self or the inner power.

They are complete persons and good human beings, rather than just being women.

You might know most of these women bloggers, and if you don’t, DO check them out –

    These inspiring women bloggers will definitely influence new women bloggers who want to participate in blogging world. I am already great fan of Adrienne Smith, Shalu Sharma & definitely your blog. I think when you publish next article on top women bloggers, the list will rise to 100.

      Hi Ahsan,

      You are absolutely right! All of these amazing women are a source of inspiration to many, and in their own ways. I’m glad you already know a few of them, and hope you check out the others as well. :)

      Ah…you caught me there…that’s what I was just thinking also, that these numbers would surely keep growing, and I would be more than happy to make the score to 50 or even 100 if there are so many who visit the blog.

      Thanks so much for your kind wishes and support. :)

    Was I surprised when I came to your post Harleena and seen my name mentioned. I am honored!

    I see a lot of women there I know, and the one’s I don’t I will be checking out!

    Being a woman in the blogging arena does have it’s challenges. I know so many young moms that do a great job in managing their business and raising children at the same time. Now that is a challenge.

    It does take strength to start your own business and be at home at the same time, especially if you have a family to raise. I have done that with my off line business so I could raise my daughter until she went off to college.

    Since the internet came into our lives, it is so much easier than having a brick and mortar business. But don’t get me wrong, it is still hard work.

    The best advice I would give any woman is to keep in mind how strong we are: just like the quote you have put above – “A woman is like a tea bag: you cannot tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

    Once again thank you Harleena!
    Blessings,
    Donna

      Hi Donna,

      Ah…I DID want to surprise all of you with this post, especially being Women’s Day today – a small token of my love for all of you. :)

      I agree, being a women blogger isn’t easy, especially when you are working online and you really don’t know the person on the other side of the screen. But yet, as you mentioned, we women bloggers do take up such challenges just like the men, though we are forever multitasking with our kids, family, and work – isn’t it? I guess that makes us a little more special ;)

      Yes indeed, working from home has given a lot of us the freedom to be with our kids and families, and take care of our work as well. I salute those single moms who manage everything so well. I like your advice to remain strong, and glad you liked that quote that I’ve always loved right from the day I read it long back.

      Thanks for stopping by, and for being a valuable part of the blog. :)

    Hi Harleena

    Well I am honored and thank you for adding me to your list.

    You asked about the experience on blogging. I found Adrienne and with connecting on her blog have gone from a trickle of visitors to an active audience. It has been very inspiring and rewarding ever since.

    I started my site to find my voice and with it I have gained a greater knowledge of myself. The more you write the more you find out about yourself, it helps build a new you. That is probably the most rewarding thing of all. It is even more fantastic if someone else finds help with the words we write. I think we have so much to offer the world, it would be selfish to keep silent.

    Thank you again and have a great weekend.

      You are very deserving, and most welcome. :)

      I am with you there – I too met Adrienne and have made many friend’s through her – I guess she is the ‘entertainment superstar’ after-all! She is a wonderful person – isn’t she?

      Nice to know more about your blogging journey. Like you, I too had started out to share my views with others, and once I knew I had somewhat a flair for writing – thereon things just picked up one after the other. You are absolutely right – the more you write about your life and experiences, the more you get to know yourself, and if this helps anyone else’s lives get better – it’s almost like your blogging journey has become worthwhile – isn’t it?

      Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend too. :)

    I’m really enjoying this new journey I’m on and there have been challenges along the way. Lisa and Brenda have been helping me out since I first started and through them I had the pleasure to connect with other great ladies like yourself Adrienne,Donna,Sue and Sylviane and like I’ve said before I so want to be you all when I grow up :)

    I’m definitely going to make some time and check out the other ladies you’ve mentioned.

      Challenges are a part of our lives, though just as you mentioned, it’s our friends and fellow bloggers who are always there to help each other out when there’s need – isn’t it? Nice of Lisa and Brenda to be always there for you, and thanks to them for connecting us as well. Aha…we need to learn from YOU instead Corina, and not the other way round you mentioned!

    Hi Harleena,

    Thank you so much for including me in the “30 Top Women Bloggers of Aha!NOW!” I’m honored and honored to be among such great woman bloggers. I love reading Aha!NOW! and usually have ‘Aha’ moments after I read a blog post and after I’ve posted a comment.

    I had no idea there was an International Women’s Day. We (the world) needs to do more to promote it. Schools could get the kids involved. Communities could plan fun events and activities. Businesses, especially large ones, could plan something too. There’s so much that can be done.

    I am grateful for the internet and blogging because it is a way to share my voice. I’m trying to encourage my sister to start a blog, but she’s hasn’t done much with technology. She’s starting small with her iPad and Twitter account. I can always sit down with her and we could have a blogging and Twitter lesson. :)

      Hi Amandah,

      You are so very welcome, and the honor has been all mine. It’s been a pleasure to be acquainted and have the opportunity to learn from so many wonderful women bloggers like you. :)

      Aha…I’m glad you like the blog posts I share, and like you, I love your comments that are so complete and well written. More so, when I reply to your comments, it’s almost like we have had our little conversation about the post too – isn’t it?

      Though it’s just another day, but International Women’s Day is celebrated – more so a way to recognize women and their lives. I wish more people would join hands to create more awareness about this day, but all of this really doesn’t happen, or perhaps they think about the men as they might feel we aren’t being ‘equal’!

      Yes indeed, the Internet has opened many options for men and women both, though for women there is more scope if she has to work from home. It would be a nice outlet for your sister too, if she starts her own blog. I guess once she gets the know-how of things, it will be smooth for her too – I can understand the initial hesitancy, as many people my end face the same problem. Ah…with you there – she really doesn’t have to worry. :)

      Thanks for stopping by, and being a part here :)

    Hi Harleena,

    Wow, thank you very much for including me in this list of amazing bloggers. I am truly honored to be in such impressive company and named by such a talented blogger as you!

    What a lovely way to celebrate International Women’s Day, by celebrating women and blogging. You’re right, the blogging platform is such a wonderful resource for women. Many women are able to earn a solid living from blogging and provide valuable information to others.

    Blogging has provided me with a voice, just as you said. I am able to share my exciting tech “finds” with the world and establish myself as someone who knows a bit about tech.

    You share such warm and important advice here, Harleena. Aha-Now is a true gift to your readers.

    I’m off to my About page to post your award banner. After I share this post, of course! :-)

    Have a fantastic weekend, Harleena!

      Hi Carolyn,

      There was NO question of not including you in the list – you are more than deserving to be one of the most wonderful women bloggers that I know. :)

      I was wanting to give a surprise this International Women’s Day, and had planned it out well in advance, though making the list was surely a tough task – it always is tough choosing just a handful – isn’t it? But I guess that’s why they are ‘THE BEST’!

      Absolutely! Blogging is providing women a voice of her own, and she’s able to earn and help others too. You are a wonderful example, especially of all the knowledge you share with all of us- and that kind of tech knowledge is made simple for the kind of us, which we won’t find anywhere other than on your blog.

      Thanks for stopping by, and for putting up the award banner on your page. I always appreciate you, our friendship, as well as your constant help and support. Happy weekend as well. :)

    I should have known you would write some type of post around this wonderful occasion. You always seem to come up with the most awe inspiring content Harleena.

    Okay, I’m honored and for once I’ll have to thank my Mom for naming me this because I ended up at the top of the list because the way my name was spelled. I love that and I’m just smiling.

    Thank you so much Harleena for recognizing us all and I’m so honored to be mentioned here. You definitely know how to make my day.

    I know quite a bit of these lovely ladies you’ve mentioned so will have to make sure I check some of the ones I’ve yet to meet.

    Thank you again Harleena for this wonderful post and mention and I sure hope you’ve had a fabulous day as well.

      Hi Adrienne,

      You knew! What a coincidence, and yes, I did want to make this day special for all of you for sure :)

      Ah…absolutely! Your mom sure needs to be thanked for naming you with the alphabet ‘A’ as you stand well above all the others, which otherwise too you do.

      You are so very deserving to be placed right on top here, and elsewhere too, for you are a true inspiration to all of us – more than you would know. I am just honored myself to have such wonderful friend’s that are part of my life and my blog – so the pleasure is ALL mine :)

      I’m sure you would know most of these women bloggers, while the others are awesome people too who I’m sure you’d love connecting with.

      Thanks for stopping by, and always being there. I appreciate and value you more than words can express. Happy weekend as well. :)

    Harleena – what can I say? I still feel like a newbie, so I’m overwhelmed to be included here – thank you so much.

    My experience in the blogosphere has been wonderful to date – I think I’ve been very fortunate to find such a friendly, supportive network of bloggers – like Mary, this was really thanks to discovering Adrienne’s blog, and following people from there.

    Thanks so much for this lovely gift to us on International Women’s Day – you definitely deserve a medal yourself!

      Hi Sue,

      You are such a warm person that it doesn’t feel like you are a newbie – and you aren’t all that new here. It seems like I’ve always known you somehow. :)

      I agree with you there. I think when we have good, friendly, helpful, and supportive friends, our online lives become all the more enjoyable and worthwhile. I think Adrienne’s blog has surely been the place to connect a lot of us with each other, so we need to thank her in more ways than one – isn’t it?

      Thank you for your kind words Sue, and for being a part of my blogging journey as well. :) Happy weekend :)

    Ah, Harleena,

    I’ve promised to myself as I stared reading your post that I was not going to scroll down and look at who was on that list.

    So, I read wisely the whole post and discovered the names as I got there.

    I know some of these ladies for the most part, but not all. I’ll have to check them out!

    So, now, I want to thank you so much and wanted to tell you that I am honored to be on your list. I wouldn’t have got mad if I didn’t because there are so many women out there!

    I know we’ve been knowing each other for over a year now. I remember that I first landed to your blog because I was seeing your picture avatar everywhere.

    It’s been so nice knowing you and again thank you for thinking of me and happy women’s day!

      So, weren’t you in for a surprise to find yourself very much there! And you just had to be, there was just no question. :)

      Yes, making the decision to choose only 30 women bloggers from the ones who visit the blog was a tough one, but once I made those criteria’s, things fell into place as it helped me decide.

      Oh…I didn’t know it was my picture avatar that got you here – I guess there are benefits after all of being in a lot of places then, because you get to know wonderful people like yourself that ways. :)

      Thanks for stopping by, and it’s indeed been wonderful knowing you too. :) Happy Women’s Day, which we should celebrate everyday- isn’t it? :)

      You have been here earlier, though just once to comment on a previous post but I welcome you once again. Yes indeed, women are doing amazingly well for themselves in all spheres of life and that’s commendable as well. I guess they are taking up challenges coming their way and have learnt to make a mark for themselves.

      Glad you could find more women bloggers whom you can reach out and connect with through this post. :)

      Thanks for your warm and kind words, and it’s been something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time now. I guess Women’s Day was one way of giving back to these awesome women bloggers and thanking them for being a part. :)

      Absolutely! The more you give the more you get, and the love of the readers is what I look for here – nothing else. I agree, the woman of today has arisen and if she finds someone who hasn’t, I feel she now has the power to take her hand and lift her up too. Just hope more women would realize their hidden powers and use them more. :)

      Thanks for stopping by. :) Happy weekend :)

      Of course, you had to be listed as you are a well deserving women blogger, and very much a part of the blog. I’m sure you know most of these amazing women, while the others who you don’t know – I feel you would love reaching out and connecting with.

      Aha..that’s wonderful then – two surprises together! Oh yes…for some people it sure was news that it’s Women’s Day as no one really celebrates it as such, and though it’s yet another day, I just thought to make it a special one for the women bloggers of the blog, and you surely had to be here. :)

      It would be wonderful if you place the badge on your blog, and if you wish to have a smaller one, just email and will send that across.

      Thanks for stopping by, and being a part. Happy weekend :)

    Hi Harleena,

    Congratulations to everyone!

    That’s really awesome :) I’m happy to see my friends in your list of women bloggers and oh… more to explore. I’m sure you have made their day with the mentions.

    Absolutely, as a man, my life isn’t complete without women :) My mother comes first in the list.

    What I really love about you that you always very kind enough to spread the love for everyone and show the power of gratefulness :) I know, Mothers are source of love. You are indeed an inspiration for everyone.

    Actually when it comes to writing and blogging, I do see women taking the lead as I’ve seen so far.

    I know there are many number of men do blogging and most of popular bloggers are men too. But I mean real blogging and couldn’t able to see a woman blogger copying someone else’s content and trying to make money out of it :)

    Especially when a women bloggers have to deal with family, that’s a lot of effort and need lot of focus :) Gosh… How busy? Remind me of the last post of yours about women.

    You have a wonderful weekend Harleena :)

    Cheers…

      Hi Mayura,

      Thanks so much for your warm wishes and constant support always. :)

      Oh yes…you would surely be knowing most of them, while the others am sure you would love to reach out and connect with. Ah…I knew your Mom would always come first, and there I would say my Mom too means the world to me, as you already know – so we share those common feelings.

      These words of appreciation make me reach seventh heaven Mayura! But the more you give the more you get, isn’t it? And I love getting back all the love of people in return, and all of this doesn’t cost me anything – it only makes me feel more happy and content that I was able to appreciate all these awesome women bloggers for being a part of my journey so far. And each one of you matters and have made the blog what it is today – so, it’s not because of me the blog exists, but because of all of YOU dear. :)

      I also read somewhere that there are more women bloggers as compared to men, but I wasn’t sure about the source so didn’t mention it in the post. But yes, they are doing very well for themselves, and most importantly, they’ve found a way to express themselves through their blogs and reach out and connect with people too.

      Men, I think know more of the technical things than women, and are able to rank much faster (that’s what I feel and I may be wrong), which makes them stand out from the others in the Blogosphere, while such is the case with very few women as compared I feel. Oh yes…a woman blogger, with a family, and work, and if she’s a single parent – nothing to match her courage for sure.

      Thanks for stopping by, and always being a good friend – I appreciate you. Happy weekend as well. :)

    I am working had to get up to speed again this year after some health issues, and I feel good about some of the ventures I’m undertaking both online and offline.

    Hi Harleena,

    I hope you had a good International Women’s Day!

    Wow, what a brilliant list of female bloggers. I recognised quite a few people on the list and look forward to checking out the blogs of those I do not know.

    I personally think women bloggers are making a huge impact in all kinds of domains and especially in the areas of personal and professional development, where my own blog lies in. I think this is quite evident on my own blog, as I probably get more women commenting (you included!) at my posts than I do men.

    Thank you.

      Oh yes…we all had fun with this post, and mine was special too as I had the chance to be with everyone here. :)

      I’m glad you know most of these women bloggers, and those of whom you don’t – I’m sure you’d love connecting up with. I think the Internet and blogging as such has given most women a voice of her own and the reach to go out and earn a living for herself – while sitting at home too. You rightly mentioned, women are making an impact all over, and personal and professional development is surely an area close to their hearts – I guess that’s why they flock on your blog. :)

      Thanks for stopping by. :) Have a great week ahead :)

    Wow Harleena, I am honored very much. Thank You! I love this quote “A woman is like a tea bag: you cannot tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

    As the song says, “What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.” I love the blogging world and how we can reach out to each other, help one another, share with each other.

    I have loved getting to know you and many of the other bloggers (ladies) you have mentioned in this list. Ladies let us keep growing the list and coming together to support and help each and everyone of us in this journey of life.

    Life is meant to live, love and enjoy. Enjoy all the little moments everyday bring and happiness happens.
    Thank you again Harleena. You always make people feel special.

      Ah..that quote is a favorite of mine too and I hope I haven’t repeated it as I like it so much! Absolutely – blogging is what’s really connecting us to each other, and it’s through our blogs and social networks that we are able to reach out and help each other too, besides the work we do.

      You must be knowing most of the women bloggers mentioned, while the others you would get to know too once you visit their blogs – each one is different and empowering in her own-self. I hope this list grows and we keep adding more of such fabulous women in it. :)

      Thanks for stopping by, and you make my day special too in more ways than one. Have a nice week ahead. :)

      Hi Theodore,

      Not to worry at all, you’re never late and always welcome anytime. :)

      Yes, you never know you might make it early next time! You surely must be knowing most of these women bloggers as each one is awesome indeed. Oh yes…I do intend having the top men bloggers in November, a treat for all the men on International Men’s Day, just as I mentioned in the post – so stay tuned. :)

      Glad you found the post inspirational, and I guess with such wonderful women bloggers mentioned – it just had to be – isn’t it? :) Yes indeed, each one is special in her own way. I hope you manage to reach out and connect with a few of them.

      Thanks for stopping by. :)

    For me this article is a motivation. If women can work hard and succeed with their career why men can not. Those who have vivid goals and do a lot of hard efforts and be patients against handicaps they face they will get what they want. We can learn from each other. Those women are models we can reflect from and take the lesson from them. Thank you very much for sharing a good topic.

      Welcome to the blog Heru!

      Nice to know that the post motivated you in more ways than one. Yes indeed, if women can do it why can’t men. I guess women really have to handle a lot more than men, especially when she is also managing her home and kids, and if she still managed to work from home and blog or earn money, then she surely is something – isn’t it?

      We do need to learn from each other, and go hand in hand where work is concerned. These women bloggers are truly inspirational, and it would be wonderful if you can reach out and connect with them. There’s always something to learn from them. :)

      Thanks for stopping by. :)

    Harleena,

    Thanks for including me in this wonderful group of women bloggers! It’s an honor! Can’t wait to take some time and visit the blogs I’m not familiar with or the ones I haven’t been to in a while.

    I have great gratitude to you! Glad we’ve connected!!

    Thanks for sharing. I am just seeing this post for the first time. Very inspirational and informative.

    This is a BIG challenge for MEN. I love what ladies are doing in the blogging market.. I guess this is a THREAT for MEN? Hahahha.. It is time for all BLOGGERS including WOMEN and MEN to start working together so that we can archive more and help each other grow, to achieve our aims and objectives. This is a proof that Women can do what men can do, even BETTER!

    But what about 30 Top MEN Bloggers of Aha!NOW? I look forward to read this…

    Thanks again.

      Hi Seun,

      As you mention later in the comment, it’s not about men and women posing challenge to each other but about working together and giving space and respect to each other to grow as bloggers. Men and Women can together refine the blogging world and make it free of gender discrimination.

      In less than a decade there has been a phenomenal increase of women bloggers in the world. It’s no threat to men, but a signal that they should not underestimate women!

      As for the award to top men bloggers, it’s going to be out in November, so hang on till then!

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing the success of these wonderful women. :)

    This is a wonderful list of incredible women. I have been so lucky over the last year to have the opportunity to read a lot of their blogs. I feel that I have grown so much from yours as well as theirs. Thank you for sharing a list of all these wonderful people.

    Hi Cynthia – nice to have you back :)

    Glad you liked the list, and yes – each one of them is incredible in her own way.

    It’s nice that you know most of these women bloggers. I agree, we learn and grow together by going through each others blogs and sharing the knowledge. I guess that’s what blogging teaches us too – isn’t it?

    Thanks for stopping by. :)

    Hi Harleena. First time reader! Great stuff! :) very inspirational. Maybe we should chat sometime when you are looking to write a post about the top 30 male bloggers. Although I’m not on ahanow, I’d love to guest post.

      Welcome to the blog Brian!

      Glad you liked the post, and yes, it’s surely one way to recognize these wonderful women bloggers – isn’t it?

      Aha…you are absolutely right – there would be a post on Men Bloggers too, just as I mentioned in the post, though they have to pass all the criteria’s mentioned above to qualify ;)

      It would be nice to have you to guest post, though you DO need to be on Aha!NOW, and be a part of the blogging community here. No harm done – isn’t it?

      Thanks for stopping by. :)

    Special hugs and blessings Harleena, finally able to create space, sit down and savour your blog and a Massive Thank You for including me in your list. WOW!! What an honour. Keep shining and spreading your simple message of family unity and togetherness. Thank you. And yes, I’d love to display an Award Banner for my website. Massive hugs and love always.

      Hi Ntathu,

      Nice to have you back after long :)

      You are most welcome and deserving to be here with all other women bloggers. I’m glad you found time to visit the blog, and I know you’ve been rather tied up and busy past few weeks.

      I’ll just email you the code for the banner in a while, though you could even use the one in the post or on the right side if you wish.

      Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice weekend :)

    Hi Harleena,

    Very thoughtful of you to honor these 30 women in your blog. Indeed, blogging has opened a door of opportunity for women to not only express themselves, connect with like-minded women, find support, and inspiration, but also make a decent income from home. I hope the woman I marry loves blogging, like you Harleena, and become a successful online entrepreneur!

      Absolutely! All of these amazing women bloggers are a very vital part of the blog and there’s just no question not to honor them here :)

      Blogging has all the plus points we can think of – the best being it’s made our reach Global and helped us connect with like-minded people, many of who have turned into good friends too. Ah..- thanks for the compliment, and I’m sure you’ll find your perfect match :)

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your views :)

    Congrats to all these awesome ladies. Most I know and many I didn’t know. Blogging for us women has become tougher and more competitive, but what I have discovered after the 3 years I have blogged seriously, is the friendships. We just really know how to come together as a community and women are a force in numbers. You chose some really awesome ladies and I am glad to say I know many of them.

      Hi Sonia,

      Thank you for your wishes, and I think all of these wonderful women bloggers deserve to be here :)

      I’m sure you know most of them. It sure has, and especially more for women because whether we like it or not there are home duties all of us have to take care, which includes kids, family, and the house in general. I also wish things were a little simpler for us at times.

      Ah…friendships and connections we’ve made is what actually works for us, as we are online most of the time. I agree with you on that one!

      Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice weekend as well :)

    But they’re all pretty incredible.

    Thanks for taking the time to recognize some of the women who have really taken blogging to a high level, and have contributed so much to their readers and followers.
